Stayed for 2 nights, rooms are stunning and so opulent. I want to go back already. Service was rapido. We had dinner in the gardens of the hotel and it was something else. The service and food as fantastic. I also noticed that children were treated so good. With one of the waiters building up the chairs, for a little... More

The staff was super helpful and friendly. The location is perfect for checking out all the sights in the area, the room was clean and had all the amenities you would expect.. breakfast was decent but overpriced

This hotel is located on a restricted driving street so when you get nearby, call the front desk and they will tell you how to get to the square about 100 feet from the hotel to park your car. They will meet you in the square and take your luggage into the hotel. Parking is 44 Euros per day and... More

Great stay, great location. Cannot complain about anything to be honest. The only thing I will say - and others talk about it also - is that I suspect they changed our room, and while very nice, I don't know if we actually got the Royal Junior Suite that we paid for. It's unfortunate to leave such a nice hotel... More

As others have stated, the location of this hotel is wonderful. It is lovely inside with lots of beautiful public spaces. It is an interesting drive getting there - you drive into a pedestrian only area (square actually) but there is an exception for hotel guests. As others have stated, we called the hotel to guide us the last portion... More

This is a beautiful grand hotel located perfectly in Siena for walking around the old town. I do think some refurbishments are needed in the rooms. We were upgraded however decided not to accept the upgrade as the room seemed smaller to us than the room we had originally booked. We enjoyed a drink at the bar and the bar... More

Great large room, view of cathedral, wonderful staff, quiet even on a busy street tho our room was not street side. We did not have car, arranged car and driver through head concierge who couldn't do enough to please us. We toured with the concierges arrangement but driven to Rome by company out of Rome.

Perfect location in the middle of Siena. We had trouble navigating to the hotel and went the wrong way up a one way street. No trouble as the hotel staff immediately appeared to guide us the right way. Friendly welcome and good rooms. The interior is beautiful. The bedrooms are not huge but perfectly good and very comfortable pillows. Breakfast... More
